Michael Morse Injury Update: Nationals Outfielder To Return To Lineup Friday Night

The rumors that injured Washington Nationals outfielder Michael Morse is returning to the lineup for Friday night's game against the Atlanta Braves have been confirmed. The Washington Nationals tweeted Friday afternoon that Morse will be in the clean-up spot for the opening game in the important series.

Morse has been on the disabled list for the entire 2012 season with a shoulder injury. He was almost ready for Opening Day, however a set back saw him miss the first two months of the season. After finding out that the injury would not require surgery, the team had him rest until he was ready to go.

He will be a welcome addition to a lineup that is struggling to find offense and power. In 2011, Morse hit .303 with 31 HRs and 95 RBIs.
